Synopsis..The axis of the atlantic high pressure ridge over central florida will shift southward ahead of a trough that will push into north florida this weekend. This will produce and increasing offshore wind flow and a higher chance for storms pushing off the coast, especially Sunday and early next week.
Gulf stream hazards..None. The approximate location of the west wall of the gulf stream based on the real time ocean forecast system as of Friday july 28th. 44 nautical miles east of ponce inlet. 30 nautical miles east of port canaveral. 25 nautical miles east of sebastian inlet. 15 nautical miles east of fort pierce inlet. 10 nautical miles east of saint lucie inlet.

east central florida forecast discussion
national weather service melbourne fl

Discussion
Currently... Soundings across central and N fl show abundant moisture
from lower to mid levels of the atmosphere with overall pwat near to
just below 2 inches, however there is warmer than normal temperature
aloft with h5 temps registering around -6 to -6.5c along with a
somewhat drier atmosphere over S fl. Abundant sfc heating wl lead to
early development of surface boundaries and this will be the initial
driver for development of afternoon storms. No one particular area
looks to be favored across inland areas when reviewing ltst hrrr
guid and none ofthe coastal areas can be precluded from late
afternoon and evening storms in considering steering level flow out
of the southwest at 10 to 15 kts. The current forecast highlighting
sct coverage of storms over the bulk of the area is in good shape.

Prev disc...

today-tonight... Ridge axis shifts south of the area, as frontal
boundary moves into the southeast united states today. A deep W sw
flow will exist across the region, and while overall pw values
remain around 1.8-2.0 inches, model guidance shows much drier air
moving in from the west between 700-500mb. This mid level dry air
and slight warming of temps aloft has lead to lower MOS pops across
the region this afternoon, especially across northern portions of
east central florida. Greatest chance for showers and storms is
forecast toward the treasure coast (around 40 percent) where
greatest moisture resides and lake sea breeze boundary collisions
are favored. Farther north and inland rain chances will be below
normal, generally ranging from 20-30 percent. Isolated stronger
storms will be possible, especially with any boundary interactions
near the east coast. Main threats will be frequent lightning
strikes, strong downburst winds and locally heavy rainfall.

Limited convection and offshore flow will contribute to high
temperatures in the mid 90s over much of the region, even along the
coast where east coast sea breeze is delayed into mid late
afternoon. Heat index values will continue to range from 100-105
most areas.

Aviation Drier mid level air forecast to move into the region
should keep shower storm coverage more isolated over northern
portions of east central florida into this afternoon. Greater rain
chances will exist toward brevard county and the treasure coast with
boundary interactions that occur with the stalled east coast sea
breeze. Tempo ifr MVFR conditions will occur with any showers and
storms that develop, but due to lower convective coverage for much
of the area will only mention vcts in the tafs for now.

Marine
Today-tonight... High pressure ridge axis shifts south of the waters.

W SW winds up to 10-15 knots will become more southerly into the
afternoon and early evening due to sea breeze development. Seas will
generally range from 1-3 feet. A few stronger offshore moving storms
will be possible today, mainly mid to late afternoon from the cape
southward.

Mlb watches warnings advisories
Fl... None.

Am... None.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
